Alright, so my darling daughter had firmly decided that she wanted to be Ginormica or Suzan from Monsters vs. Aliens this Halloween. I thought she would insist to be Raven from Teen Titans Go since she really liked that character in the show. So three weeks before today, I looked for Ginormica costume online. I knew it would be difficult to find one in the stores. As usual, I found one on Amazon. For the price of $9.99 with free shipping (as a Prime member), I admit that the costume was a great deal. Even though the material of the costume is 100% polyester and seems like the quality is for a one-time wear, I still bought the costume for my daughter. She really liked it. She even told me that she’s gonna wear it forever. Oh the happiness of a child is priceless.
So we went to the Boo on Ballard Street in Downtown Wylie on Thursday, October 29th, with my cousin Em and her two toddler girls, AC and Lexi. It was a huge success and it was so much fun as usual. Like other annual events in town, it’s always a well-attended event. Wylie Chamber of Commerce in cooperation of the local businesses, institutions, and the general public made this a successful event for children, youth, and the grown ups. There were lots of treats, giveaways, activities, and attractions for everyone.
Trunk or Treat
Glow in The Dark (held at the Olde Wylie Park Playground) – Foam Party Pit, Zipline, Giant Slides, Music, Games
Photo Opp with Miss America – Miss Texas 2015
Because of the very long long line of trick or treaters going counter clockwise, we didn’t finish the Trick or Treat on Ballard. We took the girls to the Glow in The Dark at the playground. We didn’t even see what other activities were in there because K and AC wanted to go to the Foam Party Pit. It was 10 minutes until the event was over so we just let the two girls go. The inflatable has a machine blowing non-toxic foam bubbles as it makes waves. The kids were having fun diving into the bubbly foam. Of course, they’re all wet and cold. When the two came out of the foam pit, Lexi wanted to go but it was 8:00 P.M. and the in-charge stopped letting kids in. K and AC had lots of fun but they got really cold. 🙂 Good thing I had a towel and a t-shirt in the trunk of my car so I lend Em the towel so she can wipe AC dry. I let K wear the big t-shirt.
We still had a nice Halloween trick or treating this year. Even though my dear husband carved the pumpkin to the last minute, I think it still looked cute. 🙂 He was complaining because it had lots of lines to trace. Anyway, we liked it and DD said it’s pretty.
I had all the candies ready by the front door and I turned on the front porch light as soon as it got dark. My daughter wanted to wear her wolf mask instead. We went trick or treating in our neighborhood. I think there were 15 houses, including ours, did trick or treat this year. Not bad, I guess. There were only nine last year. We gave the remaining candies to the last batch of trick or treaters from another neighborhood. I think there were more than 10 of them on a trailer. That was fun.
And this doggie was our visitor. Her name is Howler and I was dogsitting her over the weekend because her owner went on a weekend trip to California to visit a family. Howler was on her Geisha dog Halloween costume. 🙂
Oh wow! It’s already November again. Happy belated Halloween everyone. I got very busy last few days. My darling daughter and I went to the Boo on Ballard 2014 in Wylie, Texas Thursday of last week. I didn’t get to take photos because my cellphone was low battery. And we got there an hour before the event was over at 8:00 P.M. In addition, I had a hard time finding a parking spot because the parking lot in Downtown Wylie was very full. Good thing somebody was leaving so I quickly took his place.
We didn’t have theme costume for Halloween this year. I was thinking of wearing something from a fairytale character like a fairy because my little one liked to wear Princess Aurora gown at first. But she changed her mind. She wanted to wear the wolf mask that we bought from Walmart last month. Few weeks before the Boo on Ballard event and the trick or treat evening, I asked her a few times what she wanted to wear on Halloween. She insisted to wear the wolf mask. So I had to look for a dark gray toddler outfit. I thought of a gray pants and a pull-over jacket. As soon as I got off work one evening, my darling daughter and I went to a department store to look and buy an outfit for her. Luckily I saw a pair of dark gray toddler pull-over and pants set. And I found her size too! They were perfect match for my DD’s wolf mask.
